snowThere was a 50 percent increase in the motor insurance claims as the snow covered large parts of UK resulting in poor visibility and icy roads.


It was also revealed that accidents and collisions saw a rise of 42 per cent on Sunday as compared to last week.


Nick Ansley, head of motor insurance at the Co-op said that considering the icy weather it was suggested to urge the drivers to take extra care allowing extra time for journey and checking car lights and tyres before setting off.


There should be increased gap between the vehicle infront, drivers should be careful, watch weather reports and ensure that the tyres have the ample tread depth.



Travel across England and Wales has been disrupted over the weekend into Monday due to  ice and snow.


More than 7,800 homes across the Midlands, Wales and south-west England were still without power on Monday said the Western Power Distribution.



Dozens of flights were cancelled affecting thousands of passengers.
